Darcy is prejudiced against Jane and her family’s lowly social connections. Though Mrs. Bennet is disappointed that Jane and Elizabeth didn't stay longer, Mr. Bennet is glad to have them back. He had missed their conversation amid younger sister’s Kitty and Lydia's infatuation with anything related to the regiment.
